Deviled Eggs

No matter what is on your menu this Easter weekend deviled eggs are the PERFECT addition.  We've been making this recipe for the past two years and it's hands down our FAVORITE.  Great as a side, great as an appetizer, great when you need a snack at 4:00 or you might pass out :)

Step 1 is to hard boil the eggs.  I like to get the water to a boil and then gently place the eggs into the boiling water and start a timer for 12 minutes.  After 12 minutes I take them straight from the pot to an ice bath where I let them hang out until they're completely cooled.  After that you'll want to peel them, slice them in half and remove the yolks to a separate bowl.

I took horrible picture of this process mainly because my kids wanted to help and I felt like I was more worried about the knife than I was about snapping pics :)  My kids do use knives and I feel like cutting hard boiled eggs is good practice because they're super easy to cut.

Once you've scooped out all the yolks here's what you'll want to add 

(my pics have 12 so I just doubled everything)...

- 3 tablespoons mayo
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- a few pinches of salt and pepper

Use a fork and mush it all together until you have kind of a smooth consistency.  You can scoop the yolk mixture into the egg whites OR put it into a ziplock and attempt to pipe it in there.  Make sure if you pipe it that you don't use one of these dang baggies that doesn't have corners (seriously... there were no corners) because it'll make a hot mess.

Sprinkle some paprika on those bad boys and ENJOY!  If you want to get reeeeally crazy you can top them with a little piece of dill and a candied pecan (a la one of my FAVORITE McKinney restaurants) which I would have done except I wasn't about to run to the store just for candied pecans and dill :)  but TRUST ME it's delicious.

Happy Wednesday, friends!


  1. Ohhh...yum! I'll have to try this. I love anything with apple cider vinegar!

  2. The last time I made deviled eggs, I added a piece of crumbled bacon and a candied jalapeno, they were the hit of the party!

  3. This is EXACTLY how I make deviled eggs -- I've never seen a recipe so similar. Now, I use MIRACLE WHIP for this item ONLY and I think it makes a world of difference. We are mayo people but there is something in that product that is almost the "secret ingredient". A pinch or two of sugar changes it up also. Yummy!!!
